Without Westbrook and Carmelo Thunder cruise to win over Grizzlies

Without Westbrook and Carmelo Thunder cruise to win over Grizzlies

It was just a insane trade deadline that also saw Isaiah Thomas' time with the team end with just 15 games under his belt. However, the Lakers fan base either seemed to loved the deal or was unsure of the deal; not many fans hated the trade.

"We're still on the outside looking in".

But things didn't go so well for Thomas in Cleveland, where he averaged just 14.7 points and shot 36.1 percent from the field.

While one win won't solve all the Cavs' problems, Lue welcomed the sight of his players celebrating. Despite saying how hard it was for him to trade Thomas, he was met with a bitter response. Why or why not?

Reuters/David Richard-USA TODAY SportsCleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) dunks in the first quarter against the Los Angeles Lakers at Quicken Loans Arena. "He's going to compete every night and try to get whatever team he's on to the Finals, but I wanted to see a renewed sense of joy in him and being around him the last 24 hours has been great".

Ennis was averaging 6.9 points and 3.5 rebounds in 45 games for the Grizzlies.

"I want Isaiah to get his bounce back, get his spring back, get healthy", James told reporters on Friday. Also, being that Thomas is already on his fifth team despite being an National Basketball Association all-star should be concerning enough. Luckily, IT's contract just has one year left. "Business is business. Hey, I'm off to the Lakers". Cleveland opted for a full-scale reboot (80% of the roster!) centered on extending Lebron's window and the Clippers shed a potential albatross and committed to the future. "The roster needed to be reshaped and I am fine with it. Cleveland was able to keep F Cedi Osman and the Brooklyn Nets' pick". Yes, it is possible this trade gets LBJ to California. The cap space will increase to $69 million if they do not bring back and stretch the $37 million owed to over five years. The Cavs tried to incorporate him into their offense, but it was forced and bogging them down. Lue said "I'm fine" when asked about his health, but did not provide any details. Assuming Cleveland rights the ship, don't expect him to leave NE Ohio. I grew tired of hearing how the Cavs couldn't do much with the roster because of James refusing to commit beyond this season.

Gilbert has tried, and failed, to get a long-term commitment from James, and in the absence of that, the Cavs had no choice but to cover themselves, particularly after that Irving trade was starting to look like one of the more lopsided deals in recent memory. Cleveland fans might not want to see this. "Upgraded." And when he was congratulated, he said "Thank you".

-Jameer Nelson was traded for the second time in seven days, going from the Chicago Bulls to the Pistons in a deal that reunited the point guard with former coach Stan Van Gundy. To view more of Ryan's work you can view his author page here.

"Larry Nance Jr., how cool is it for him to come home?" The Cavaliers organization chose to trade Thomas to the Lakers for Clarkson and Nance Jr on Thursday afternoon in a trade which had the world talking.
